A new NBC News analysis of presidential results in every county in the U.S. finds that “three Atlanta-area suburban Georgia counties — Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale — increased their Democratic vote share between 2008 and 2020 by more than any other counties in the country.”
- In Gwinnett, Barack Obama won 44.5% of the vote in 2008, while Biden won 58.4% in 2020.
- In Henry, Obama won 45.9% in 2008, while Biden won 59.7% in 2020.
- And in Rockdale, Obama won 54.4% in 2008, while Biden won 69.9% in 2020.
“What’s more, seven of the eight counties that saw the largest increase in Democratic vote share across the entire country just happen to be in Georgia. And all of Georgia’s 10 most populous counties saw an increase in Democratic vote share from 2008-2020.”Save to Favorites
